Horse Armor, added in 1.6.1, is found in various loot Chests, including Dungeon and Nether Fortress ones, and can be equipped on a tamed horse as protection, like human Armor. They have infinite durability. If a horse with horse armor dies, it will drop the armor, as well as a Saddle if it is wearing one.
Note that Horse Armor, if a Saddle is not equipped, does not enable controlling a horse.
- Golden Horse Armor actually is stronger than Iron Horse Armor, despite the fact that normal Gold Armor is weaker than normal Iron Armor.
- Horse Armor does not come in Chain classes, although human armor does.
